The second half of your stylish honeymoon adventure sees you taking to the road for an hour’s drive west along Portugal’s southern coast, arriving at the beautiful Praia de Rocha. This popular resort town is classic Algarve, with a beautiful sandy beach flanked by rugged coastline. Your hotel, though, is far from standard resort fare.
The Bela Vista Hotel & Spa
is a beautiful heritage hotel, perched on the beach, which has been owned by the same family since the 19th century and has the traditionally elegant décor to match. If lazing on the beach sounds like your idea of paradise, then there’s golden sand lying on your doorstep; if you’re feeling more energetic, then kitesurfing, jet-skiing and sailing are among the water-based activities on offer.
Back on dry land, you can take to the golf course or browse the markets in traditional nearby towns like Loule. The rest of the time, simply relax: take in the beautiful vistas that give the hotel its name, enjoy romantic candlelit dinners at the Michelin-starred restaurant, and pamper yourselves with indulgent treatments in the hotel spa.
After four nights of pampering, dining, sun, sea and sand in Praia de Rocha, your honeymoon adventure comes to an end, and you’ll drive back to Faro for your flight home.
